Vlad Dascalu is a racer, through and through. And in 2021, he broke out in a big way in his second elite season, taking his first career podium with a fifth place finish in Leogang, and his first career World Cup medal with a silver performance in Snowshoe. In between, he fulfilled a lifelong dream and raced for Romania at the Olympics, placing seventh. After two years with Trek-Pirelli, Vlad is stepping up to Trek Factory Racing in 2022, and hopes to get another shot at a World Cup win. We can't wait to see what he does next!
